Troubleshoot purchase errors on Android TV

If you receive an error on Android TV when you try to make a Stadia purchase, update Google Play Services on your Android TV device and then try again. If your device doesn't have enough room, remove other apps or content from your device to free up space, then try the update again.

Note: Some older Android TV devices might not have enough space to update Google Play Services.
